All-American Girls

A series of cross-stitched data visualizations giving an overview of how women voted in the 2012 Presidential election.

Data Representation

\"All-American Girls\" is a data visualization of who women voted for in the 2012 Presidential election, presented in needlepoint. Six states will be represented -- three swing states, two \"blue\" states and a \"red state. The lettering in each cross stitch will contain two different colors: the color of the political party of the appropriate candidate (filled in by the exact percentage of stitches in the lettering that women voted for each candidate in the state) and grey for the remainder. (So, for example, in Ohio, exactly 55% of Obama\'s stitches will be blue, while 44% of Romney\'s will be red.)
